What's Orleans Like?

The wide boulevard Jeanne d'Arc leads to the city's most obvious sightseeing highlight, the cathedral Ste-Croix, an imposing neo-Gothic edifice with stained glass windows that tell the story of the Maid of Orleans. For more Joan, the Maison de Jeanne-d'Arc is a reconstruction of the house where she stayed during the siege of Orleans in 1429, with family-friendly interactive displays. The Groslot building is an impressive 16th-century house that was used as a royal residence by a series of French kings. Tours show the interiors and the gardens. The Orleans art museum has an impressive collection including works by Picasso, Tintoretto and Van Dyck. For a break from sightseeing, the Parc Floral de la Source offers elegant flower gardens, croquet lawns and a butterfly house. Orleans hotels are the perfect base for exploring further afield down the Loire valley.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Orleans

English has not been widely spoken around Orleans since Joan repelled the invaders in the 15th-century, so a French phrasebook will be useful. The cathedral is one of France's most revered religious sites and visitors should dress respectfully when sightseeing. Orleans is an ideal place to sample the cuisine and wines of the Loire. Culinary specialities include game stews, often cooked with wild mushrooms. Freshwater fish such as perch feature on regional menus, usually served with the typical beurre blanc sauce. For picnics, the market halls on Place du Chatelet offer plenty of local meats, cheeses and pastries. Browse the features of the Hotels.com website to find the ideal Orleans rooms for your stay. Our site offers guest reviews, sample room descriptions, photo galleries and interactive maps showing the proximity of the main attractions to Orleans hotels, to give you a clear picture of what to expect.
